“I have always enjoyed Irving farm coffee and when I'm in NYC I go to their shop on Irving Place near Union Square. I'm a coffee lover and I'm happy to see more and more scientific evidence that coffee, (yes, roasted coffee!) may have many health benefits. See here including possibly lowering the risk of Alzheimer's disease and more.”

“Once you get past all the marketing nonsense, such as the free trial scams and the outrageous medical claims, some of these so-called superfoods, such as acai, are actually very beneficial. The process of freeze-drying is an excellent way to capture the nutritional value of fruits, like acai since you can only get the fresh fruit in Brazil and it starts to lose potency soon after harvesting. By the way, I wonder what the nutritional value is of the fruit most of us buy on supermarket shelves? I find free-dried acai to be excellent for me since I never eat enough fresh fruits and vegatables. Here is an excellent source for legitimate information about acai berry fruit

“Excellent post. It is a shame that the moronic Rick Santelli's of the world (i.e. listeners of right wing talk radio) don't understand that it was the trading in derivatives (credit default swaps and the like) by the insiders at the financial institutions, in pursuit of the illusion of profits for the ultimate purpose of taking huge bonuses, that is at the heart of the collapse. Not the "subprime problem" which was the mere spark that set off this bonfire. acai berry”

"We Just Really Knew Him As The Question Mark Kid"

“The tragic massacre of 33 people at Virginia Tech has dominated the news since the story broke on Monday. On Tuesday, the day after the tragedy all of the network news anchors did live broadcasts from the scene, bringing viewers up to date with every small piece of information. Bold newspaper headlines from all over the country lead with the same story. It is the kind of news coverage that we all expect with such a large number of senseless deaths. There has not been much time for or much interest in "lighter" good news. Massacres of this magnitude and worse are happening in Iraq many times each and every week as the civil war there rages on. But President Bush and so many supporters of his war in Iraq continually complain that the news media only shows the bad news in Iraq and not the good news. Maybe these war supporters should take note that massacres of innocent civilians in Iraq properly dominates the news from there, just like it dominates the news at home. Maybe the "bad" news coverage from Iraq has been far too restrained in relation to the frequency of the massacres there. Just imagine if events like Mondays tragedy in Virginia , and worse, were happening in the U.S. every week.”
